Jaxie Parker is a sexy, insightful executive editor for expensive Atlanta nightlife, sipping martinis and gossiping with his best friend. Suddenly, when he is responsible for his company’s annual pro bono project, he enjoys living in a fast cherry.
Task: Make a plan to revive the Rumton town on the South Carolina coast. The declining population, lack of industry and poor economic years threaten Rumton to break and desperate. But Jaxie knows little about how small towns will “do not”, and how to withdraw less from saving.
He comes to Rumton and discovers that his worries are no longer shopping and resting places. There is not even a hotel, and in an older house it is necessary to sleep with an old man named Pop.
